Graphing Aids:
A graphing calculator is any handheld device that allows the user to input equations in “y=” form and will output an image of the graph for that input.
CASs:
Software run on a computer that allows the user to input equations and will provide a graphical image for that input.
Fixed Window:
Plotting graphs using a preselected range of x and y values.
Automatic Window:
Plotting graphs using a preselected range of x values where the ranges of y values are calculated such that al points fit in the window.
